MILLINGTON, Tenn. - The Missouri Tigers played a total of 23 innings on Friday, losing in extra innings to Akron by a score of 8-5 in 13 innings just eight hours after falling to BYU in 10 innings.
Akron's Kurt Davidson broke a 5-5 tie with a two out, three-run home run in the top of the 13th inning after the Tigers had rallied to force the extra innings.
The Tigers trailed by two after seven innings, but scored a run in each of the next two innings to force the extra innings. In the eighth, sophomore Ryan Lollis delivered a two-out triple to drive in junior Evan Frey to cut the Zips lead to one.
The Tigers then loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth inning and Frey drove in the tying run on a sacrifice fly, allowing freshman Aaron Senne to cross the plate and force the game to extra innings.
Frey finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two driven in.
Freshman Kyle Gibson pitched the final six innings in relief for the Tigers. He struck out eight and retired the side in order in his first three innings, including striking out the side in the 10th inning, but was saddled with the loss.
Frey helped Mizzou put a run across the plate in each of the first two innings. He led off the game with a stand-up triple and scored the game's first run on a balk by Akron starting pitcher Frank Turocy, who had two balks in the first inning and three on the night.
In the bottom of the second inning, Frey connected on a double, which drove in freshman Trevor Coleman.
Akron put runs on the board in four of the first five innings, including a two-run top of the fifth inning. Both of the runs in the fifth were unearned.
Earlier in the day, Missouri lost a 10-inning game to BYU by a score of 4-1.
MU will face Memphis at 4 p.m. on Saturday before taking on Navy at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.
